Sorry for getting you a riled up. I think that the fact that we are discussing these two players in this forum(that is full of opinions) is because they are both high quality players. Everyone looks at kills as the big stat and although Hart has over 2000 kills I think 2000 digs is even more impressive. If I was at the service line and had a choice to serve to Hart or to serve to Thompson I would serve to Thompson every time. They are two different types of players. Thompson will be a very good front row player at UND. Hart will be a very good six rotation player in college. I believe when you look at Gatorade player of the year you have to look past kills and judge on defensive stats also. I would want Thompson on my team any day I am just offering my opinions after watching these two through the years.
